Picturing the Iconic: Andy Warhol to Kara Walker
October 24, 2015 – January 15, 2016
Jordan D. Schnitzer and The Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation
The first exhibition at our Kearns Boulevard location is Picturing the Iconic: Andy Warhol to Kara Walker.
This exhibit features 90 works loaned from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and The Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation – and is co-curated by the Art Museum of Sonoma County. It is a selection of contemporary art selected around the concept of “the iconic.”
The exhibition is about icons – whether it is the elevation of the ordinary as in Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, or a look at celebrity icons as in Chuck Close’s portraits of President Obama and Brad Pitt. It features works from well-known modern and contemporary artists like John Baldessari, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons, Kiki Smith, Barbara Kruger and of course Andy Warhol and Kara Walker. There will be some sculptural work as well but the exhibition is primarily works on paper (i.e. lithographs, screenprints, photographs, etc.).
